1) Joe Paterno is a disgrace and he should be remembered only for this incident.
2) Penn State should of gotten the death penalty. This is a institution of higher learning not the NFL. Molest kids or you are letting kids through your negligence be harmed you lose your right to compete in sports until you can prove your campus is safe and your institution is a responsible member of the NCAA.
3) the players - well this is the problem isnt it, but please this not the first time the NCAA has invoked this rule and screwed the student athlete.
A coach can leave at any time and with little if any penalty. Players cannot transfer without losing a year of eligibility.
The NCAA is not fair, they do not care about the student athlete, they care about making money and to the NCAA, Penn State has TV deals, Shoe Deals and they cannot let the Penn State Football name be tarnished and lose revenue.
Sorry I despise the NCAA and how they have destroyed all sports to give the SEC, the Big Ten and the Big Twelve another football game so these schools, the NCAA and ESPN can make money. Which is ironic since the NCAA and schools make more money on the NCAA Men's BBall Tourney.
Ask yourself how is the best basketball program of the last 30 years, UConn (9 Women NCAAs Championships and 3 Mens Championships) NOT in a major conference?
Sorry off topic, but no I feel no remorse for Penn State or Joe Pa, the players were exploited as they were exploited before the scandal. Unfortunately this will continue regardless of scandals, money is everything in the US.
